Comic-Con 2016: Medieval times gets the Guy Ritchie treatment

Guy Ritchie may be the best thing to happen to medieval times since “Game of Thrones.”

The director’s vision of “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” was presented to San Diego Comic-Con at the Warner Bros. panel on Saturday, and Ritchie’s high-octane sensibilities seemed to agree with the sword in stone.

The king himself, “Sons of Anarchy” alum Charlie Hunnam, was on hand to present the first look. Ritchie’s swift, almost-POV camerawork was on display — as was Hunnam’s enviable physique.

Hunnam seems much more like a street hustler than royalty in the action flick, but it works to his advantage. Jude Law makes for a compelling villain, with welcome appearances from Djimon Hounsou and Eric Bana.

Warner Bros. unleashes the retelling on March 24, 2017 in the U.S.
